Workgroup to Investigate Online Forum for HOD
The House of Delegates (HOD) currently meets one time per year at the AMTA National Convention and current policy and bylaws only allow position statements and recommendations to be considered at that meeting.
Delegates potentially consider multiple position statements and recommendations at each meeting, which may require a significant amount of ongoing discussion and feedback, involving delegates and the author(s) of these items before they can be fully considered.
Current policy and bylaws restrict the HOD’s ability to respond efficiently, effectively and quickly. Because the Governance Committee (GC) has an ongoing charge to evaluate the needs of the association, the board charged the GC to create a workgroup, that will also include a member from both the Position Statements Proposal Review Workgroup and the House of Delegates Operations Committee, to investigate the use of an online forum for the HOD. The workgroup will report back no later than June 2011.
